Tren Urbano: San Francisco Station
About the Area
The Tren Urbano is a new star in our urban landscape. With time, we shall become aware of its revolutionary presence, and change our conventional image of the city by gazing at it from the train cars. A different city, at once fantastic and ordinary, will reveal itself to the train's passengers. Moreover, the Tren Urbano is a place, like the communities traversed by it. Passengers will use the train as an entry and exit point into daily life. To those who live in its vicinity it is a claimable landmark. Art proposed for this site must reconcile local character with the overall metropolitan scope of the route. Given the technical uniqueness of each station, proposed works should be limited to the sites specifically identified, which were selected after a thorough analysis of the operation.

Seascape leads us to a voyage across the depths of the sea. It invites passersby to broaden life experiences in the sphere of the imagination. The sea, a privileged symbol of travel, is proposed as a stage for the interactive movements that will take place at the San Francisco Station of the Tren Urbano, a space to be filled with creatures and subtle nautical references that will accompany us in our journey.

This work, by artist Lourdes Correa, consists of a bank of 150 porcelain forms inspired by the sea bottom. The forms cut through the train station, unleashing a series of poetic metonyms that transform the space into a submarine bottom. The ethereal floating forms, harmlessly drifting through underwater currents, impress a sense of movement to the undisturbed group of marine organisms. Moreover, this piece will contrast with the flow of visitors to the area, creating a visual oasis, an imaginary resting point that will become a metaphor for those wishing to let their thoughts drift while waiting for the train.
